President's Message

I'm honoured and delighted to have been appointed as President of the Insurance Institute of Cheltenham and Gloucester for 2021-2022. Lots of excitement to come in the next 12 months - more details coming soon!

A huge thank you and well done to Simon McGill for his steady hand on the wheel steering us through a challenging last couple of years. His support and mentoring has been key to learning the ropes.

Having led the Education Team for the past 2 years, I am extremely proud of the quality of our CPD programme. The team delivered a variety of events which continued against the backdrop of the pandemic providing our members with high quality events whilst adapting to delivering webinars.

My chosen charity for my year as President is Sue Ryder Leckhampton Hospice. I will be raising awareness and volunteering for my charity throughout the year by cycling the total distance of the boundary that our institute covers and through a number of our other events during the year. 

I hope that we will be able to get out and about later this year and arrange some social and career events in person if the government roadmap goes to plan.

One final thank you to Paula James, Phil Jones, Tanya Macdonald, Matthew Harding and the rest of the Commercial Underwriting team at Ageas UK for supporting me in my IICG activities over the last few years.
